Behind the Brand
Coconut Bowls was founded in late 2015 by Australian digital nomad, Jake McKeon. He was ending a six month journey where he traveled around the world backpacking and surfing. His travels opened his eyes to the growing problem of single use plastic worldwide where he saw beaches in Central America, Southern California, and Europe covered in litter.
When Jake came to the end of his travels in Bali, he was inspired by the vision of using wasted coconut shells as a resource to eat from after seeing local crafts people in Bali sanding and polishing coconut bowls into keepsake bowls. Little did he know that this was just the very beginning!
Coconut Bowls Brand Story
Jake had 100 coconut bowls made in Bali and packed them up with his surfboard to head back to his homeland in Australia - ready to share his new idea with friends and family.
Overtime, he began creating smoothie bowls in his Coconut Bowls every morning to keep his tropical travel days alive in spirit. After a few shares to Instagram, his friends started to become a part of his ritual and before he knew it - people wanted to buy the coconut bowls and he sold out!
Every year billions of coconut are harvested for their water and fruity white meat - unfortunately, 99% of coconut shells go to waste. That's where Coconut Bowls comes in! They reclaim these wasted coconut shells and turn them into a resource. There is truly no piece left behind - Coconut Bowls works with local artisans to handcraft leftover coconut shell chunks into wooden utensils.
